The tool is simple and well thought out. It is 4 x 1.4 x .9 in (100 x 36 x 23 mm). The input controls are all achieved with one button and has a thin rubber molding in just the right places without being bulky or protruding like protective rubber bumpers on a child's toy. You can set it on surfaces, such as glass, with a steep grade without it sliding around. The COO of my laser measure is Malaysia. I have tested mine against a reputable brand tape measure which was only a few days old at the time. My laser measure reads exactly the same as the tape measure every time, down to the exact mm or 1/16" depending on which unit of measure I'm using. I was happily surprised to see this since the specs state it's accuracy "+/- â...›" (+/- 3mm)". I have mostly tested it in the 12-30' (6-9m) range on flat horizontal surfaces against right angle surfaces. I do a lot of wall layout as an art installation tech and would love to have a couple of bubble vials integrated into the body of the tool as reference for level and plumb when taking measurements. I still give it a 5 star rating since the usefulness of level or plumb only works in a limited number of scenarios but as accurately as mine reads, being out of square against a perpendicular surface could easily add length to a measurement. Since the tool is rectangular, I'm able to just hold a small level with it if I happen to need that much accuracy. Most of the time I'm able to get precise enough measurements by measuring near a parallel floor, wall or ceiling joint so it really isn't much of an issue for me. For me, the best part about this tool is being able to take precise measurements where a tape measure would be bending or sagging, which adds length to a measurement. I can be up on a scissor lift and measure a large wall from top to bottom or side to side with out any of the issues I would encounter using a tape measure and a 40' (12m) wall is just as easy measure as an 8' (2.4m) wall. This is also a fraction of the size of a tape measure which would be capable of measuring equivalent length.

So simple to use!

By Burner

from Bettendorf, IA, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I have been using this little tool for measuring all kinds of things, especially the dimensions of my house. This GLM-15 is so easy to use and the hold function is priceless, since I cannot always see the display in the dark or behind something. It seems very accurate and does not "hunt' for a value like some others I've tried. Very pleased!

Immensely Handy

By DannyJ

from Squamish, BC, Canada

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

My little sister got this for me as a Christmas present. I've been doing a lot of framing for work lately, and now I automatically go for the laser rather than my tape. It just makes sense; it's more accurate than a tape, and saves time and often physical energy. Huge plus that it doesn't take up much space.

Best compact laser measure

By JasonElectric

from Atlanta

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I really love this product. I use this laser measurer everyday to measure all kinds of things that would be hard to measure with a regular tape measure. I don't know how I could measure from floor to ceiling, or wall to wall without this product. This has become essential and has paid for itself many times over because it saves me so much time and labor costs. Highly recommended tool for anyone, expecially electricians like myself

Great tool!

By Fishdoc

from Hanover, PA, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

This is a great measuring tool. It's easy to use and very reproducible. It virtually eliminates the need for a second person to hold a measuring tape for distances greater than 12 ft. The only downside to it is it's almost too small; it can be hard to find in the toolbox.

Easy to handle

By Champ

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I use this for measuring rooms for kitchen remodels and many are in construction with no lights installed which makes it difficult to read steel tape measures. We use metric dimensions which this handles. The best feature is the "square design" of the case. I can hold the end steady against a wall or the floor with one hand due to the flat bottom and hit the "measure" button without the laser moving all over. The other great feature is that it fits in my front pocket (barely larger than a cell phone) so I can easily slip it in and out as I use it. I would highly recommend this tool.

Great Time Save

By AlJr

from LaPlace, LA, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I bought this because I was planning a big job of replacing all the window coverings with Roman Shades (inside mounts). It enabled me to take several measurements of both the length and width of the windows to ensure accuracy of custom designs. I dreaded attempting this with a manual tape measure.

I bought this to aid in measuring crown molding on rm. 14ft. x 16ft. w/ 10 ft high walls. My wife was unable to climb ladders to help. This worked well and ceiling looks good. My wife was happy so that means I was happy.

measured out 3 jobs for quotes since I purchased it. It's quick and professional. No moving things so your measuring tape can follow the floor. No bending over to read the tape. Just point and push the button.

This was a Christmas ...

By KingdomRestoration

from Becker Mn

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

This was a Christmas present last year. It has been incredibly handy. It saves a lot of time on my bidding process if I just quick need to get over all measurements for a room. It is also a big help when doing long lengths of trim on my own, especially crown moudling when you really don't want to have to or measure more than once. The only thing I would change is the on/off button. It feels a little too soft ergonomically. I accidentally place it in HOLD rather than turn it off or on frequently. I am not complaining that it is one button operation. That is a must if you don't want to disrupt your measurement while altering a setting. But If the button were less spongy and had a more definitive feel I think it would make ease of use a little better.

Accurate and Compact - Perfect Combination

By Geordie

from Ontario, Canada

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

Found this invaluable during a recent renovation of a living room/hallway floor installation. The room was a nightmare and everything was a mile out of square. This little tool allowed me to map out the discrepancies with ease. Simple, straight forward to use and as long as you keep a steady hand, the measurements are spot on. Saved a ton of time and the compactness makes it easy to store and carry. Would have loved it if Bosch had added a little carrying pouch/belt clip to keep this in but no complaints at all with its functionality.

Awesome pocket sized tool

By trimcat

from Halifax, NS, Canada

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

the glm-15 is a great little laser measure. this instrument very well suited for trades who are in the field who are installing solo, or for those who are measuring up smaller items for estimating purposes. the ability to take longer measurements solo is where this really shines, where as with a standard tape measure you need someone to hold the hook end when measuring anything over 10 so the tape doesnt sag. This laser only has one mode on it which makes it better suited to someone on a jobsite installing, there is no fumbling with different modes when using it. if its floating in a toolbelt it can go into different modes by buttons getting mashed, you dont have to worry about that you can just point and shoot no confusement. Its compact size is very handy too, it takes up less space in a toolbelt which is key for someone who has to carry quite a few hand tools. the only thing the gls-15 lacks is a nylon pouch to keep it in, having one would help protect it from getting damaged when bouncing around in a toolbelt

GLM 15 was a Christmas gift from my wife. It's amazing. I am a realtor and time is money. This laser measure saves me lots of time gathering the measurements for my listings. No more back out to the truck for a tape measure during a showing. Accurate and fast.. Now it's always in my shirt pocket. All day every day. Would be lost without it !!!

Brought the laser measure 2 weeks a go to make a transition from the norm of a tape measure and loved the no stretching out my arm to hold the tape from sagging to measure along distance, small, accurate, and compact. The only con i have is the laser measure's not back lit work on that please!

Nearly replaces a Tape Measurer

By jmorg1980

from Bowling Green, KY, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

For the price of this tool is is a 5 start product. It is small enough to carry with you at all times and it is extremely accurate. I have found myself using it in most cases when I would use a tape measure and have made more accurate cuts. I recently used it when framing some "built in place" walls that were over 12' tall and i just shot a laser from the bottom plate to the top plate and made my cuts which fit snug. No climbing a ladder! This tool is also great for anyone who figures jobs like flooring, etc. to get room sizes is a snap and it shoots a distance that works with most room sizes. I do like how the laser changes increments continually holding your measurement only when you press the button. If i am laying marks on a wall I can start at one end and make marks as i walk with the laser and the measurement changes. This isn't possible with many distance lasers. I do have GLR225 and it has a few extra features I like but is much more expensive, just depends on if you need the features or not. The only feature I wish the GLM15 had that the GLR225 does is a inch measurement. The GLM15 has metric and standard but 39" shows 3'3". The GLR225 will allow you the option to have the measurement either way. If this had this, for me, it would be perfect and 5 Stars but that's because I prefer the inch measurement for measuring and cutting. Picky I know :)

I've been using this great compact laser measurer for several weeks now and it is by far the most accurate and user friendly measurer I've ever owned. With it's superior accuracy and super bright laser it makes layouts a snap, saving me time and money. Now I know what I'm giving my crew for Christmas. Bravo Bosch!

Compact and Accurate

By Wingnut55

from Ann Arbor, MI, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

Have been using this for about a week and a half now and I must say it is a very handy little tool. I am the maintenance person in our facility and need to do a lot of measuring by myself, and this has been very helpful in accurately estimating wire/conduit runs, room dimensions, and height dimensions. Also very helpful with awkward measurements like inside cabinets and machinery. It is very accurate. I have compared it with my tape and it is spot on (been measuring primarily in the 5-35ft range). You will still need your tape measure for lumber cuts, but for quick estimating this is great. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because it only reads in foot/inches and fractions and meters. It would be nice if you could get a readout in inches with decimals. When estimating areas it is hard to quickly add 10' 3 5/8" x 7' 8 9/16". But other than that it is a very handy, reliable tool and I would definitely recommend it to a friend or colleague.

Compact and accurate

By James5534

from Thomasville, GA, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I received the Bosch GLM 15 laser measure tool about a week ago. I was impressed with its accuracy and compact size. Due to its size, I was able to slide it in my pocket between uses. It was unbelievably accurate with each measurement. My buddy working alongside me was hesitant in solely using it for our cuts, but was also pleasantly surprised with its accuracy as all our cuts fit perfectly. It was most amazing when I took long measurements which would have required the use of a helper/second person, however with this tool, I was able to make the measurements on my own. I've used this tool in a variety of ways and am continuing to find new uses as I become more familiar with the tool. I would recommend this tool to anyone needing a simple, easy to use measuring device. As a long time user of Bosch tools, Bosch continues to provide quality tools with up to date technology at a great price point.

Easy and accurate

By Seth

from Pardeeville, WI, United States

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

I've been using this tool for the past few days and it's amazing. Easy to use and accurate. I can do the square footage of a room in about 10 seconds. I've used it to measure the inside of dresser drawers I'm making to put bottoms in and I've used with my colt router on window sills in my living room. I wish I had this laser years ago. Makes everything easier. In direct sunlight out doors you can see the red dot up to about 20' , but it will measure the 50' (maxes out at 52'). I would definitely recommend this, especially if you are by yourself measuring rooms or the exterior for siding. A lot easier to just point the laser at the peak than try to hold a tape up.

The input controls are all achieved with one button and has a thin rubber molding in just the right places without being bulky or protruding like protective rubber bumpers on a child's toy.

I can be up on a scissor lift and measure a large wall from top to bottom or side to side with out any of the issues I would encounter using a tape measure and a 40' (12m) wall is just as easy measure as an 8' (2.4m) wall. This is also a fraction of the size of a tape measure which would be capable of measuring equivalent length.

Good Value

By CaptainDark

from Quispamsis, NB, Canada

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

Many lasers on the market some with great features, but not needed for me. A small accurate laser that could be kept in my pocket and just to measure distance. Have been using for 2 weeks no issues except I wanted inches and it went metric, quick look at the manual and switched back, working well out doors even in bright sunlight. Would definitely recommend.

By tooljunkie

Comments about Bosch Laser 50 Ft. Tape Measure (GLM 15):

Just bought this today, and I have been testing it against a brand new Stanley 30' tape measure. So far it has been spot on playing with it around the house, as far as accuracy is concerned. Gonna take it to work tomorrow and see how I works under work conditions. My main concern is in bright sunlight.... We'll see. The only gripe I have is , it can't be set to display in inches only. Being a carpenter we deal in inches rather than feet and inches alot just to avoid confusion when relating measurements to the cut man.
